Awful!!!
24 December 2007 | by simon-746See all my reviews

I just saw the movie, and I found it very disappointing. This is Dick Maas' first movie in 6 years, and his first movie with Dutch dialogues in 12 years, his last one being Flodder 3. I was hoping that Maas learned from his errors in the past, but somehow he managed to make exactly the same ones again. There is too much dialogue, the jokes are rarely funny. I don't know about you, but I've had enough of that "making fun of very rich people", this movie does it again... The main characters are so dumb, that you want to cry sometimes. But you can't do that, because the sound is sometimes so terrible that you've got to listen carefully what they are saying... yet another Dutch movie with poor sound! But not all is bad, there are some nice special effects, but hey, that guy that was shot through the hand in the club Mikado... Dick, you took that from From dusk till dawn... if that was your inspiration, look somewhere else and don't copy that silly joke in you own stuff... and please, come with something new, because I felt like i was watching Flodder IV for some reason...
